    Folks, is there any way to know the current ECU version without going to FASS?

    I searched the forum and a few other links and was not able to come across any possible way to check the version ourselves.

    Cheers,

    Hey guys
    I have noticed that when I apply brakes slowly to bring the car to a halt from a crawling speed I hear a whistle coming from the brakes. It only comes when I am gentle on the brakes not otheriwse. Should I be worried considering the jet is only four days old. It's a July make. In the PDI I did not some rusting issue but passed it off. Any advice would be nice

    @Rahul Grover, it's a characteristic of TJet. Don't worry. All is well.

    TF-ian Biraj, an early t-jet Linea owner, did a bit of research to account for this, and what he came up with makes sense, since it fits the timing of the brake sound: the brake pads used on Linea-s (certainly the t-jet, probably also the mjd) have metal content, for better bite and durability, and it is that metal content that results in these occasional and occasioned sounds from the brakes. Whether other cars in the c2-segment have similarly part-metallic brakes pads: i don't know. But given the awesomely superior braking of the Linea (t-jet): it is a welcome trait, if anything.

    cheers, enjoy the turbo-jet goodness!
